Center Story - Reston
After a successful year in the Vienna market, I opened my second brain training center in Reston in January 2012. Having lived on the edge of Reston for over 10 years, I had many ties to the community and the surrounding cities including Great Falls and Herndon where my children attended many activities. During the nearly nine years, we have worked with thousands of families from the Reston, Herndon, Great Falls, Potomac Falls, Oakton, Sterling, Oak Hill and surrounding areas. I am an active member of the community holding board positions and leading annual award programs for the schools.
